Detox Time line. The normal period for home detox is between 7 and 12 days. It all depends on the severity of the user. Plus we do not want the client uncomfortable. We will detox slowly and in a medically safe way. This is so the client does not suffer withdrawal. The nice thing is, with the medication we will use, the client will wake up in the morning not feeling sick, not having any shakes, not have any cravings, and will be very conformable. Most clients say to us after their alcohol home detox, “I wish I had of done this years ago”. It really is that easy.
